Alcatel-Lucent Named to LATINA Style 2007 List of 50 Best Companies for Latinas in the United States.

MURRAY HILL, N.J., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced it has been named as one of the 50 best employers for Hispanic women in the United States by LATINA Style Magazine. Lucent Technologies, which merged with Alcatel last December, had been included on this list the past three consecutive years.

More than 1,000 companies participated in this year's application process and were evaluated based on issues that LATINA Style readers identified as most important to them in the workplace. Among the principal areas of evaluation are: number of Latina executives, mentoring programs, Latina board members, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support, employee benefits, women's issues, job retraining, affinity groups and Hispanic relations.

LATINA Style focuses on Hispanic cultural, career and business news, and has conducted this study on an annual basis since 1998. Lucent has made the LATINA Style 50 list a total of seven times, including in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2006. The evaluations for the 2007 annual report were based on 2006 data prior to the merger with Alcatel in December 2006.

"It is an honor to be selected, once again, for this recognition," said Ethel Batten, Alcatel-Lucent's Human Resources Vice President of Global Diversity, Compliance and Policy. "Our commitment to diversity has always been a central part of who we are. We understand that diverse people and perspectives are vital for our success as a global business, and we work hard to create an environment that attracts, develops and supports diverse, talented employees."

This year's results appear in the September issue of LATINA Style. An annual awards ceremony honoring the LATINA Style 50 Companies will take place on February 7, 2008 during LATINA Style's Diversity Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.
